Vampyr Shifts Focus to Its Human Characters
Dontnod Entertainment has continued its video series on the development of Vampyr with a new video about the human characters in the game. All of the NPCs in the game have their own backstories, goals, and routines that they will follow but its how the player interacts with them that is the most interesting. Experience in Vampyr is not gained through defeating enemies but by sacrificing human characters. But every character killed leaves a rippling effect on the rest of the game. When performing the sacrifice, players will also be able to listen to the victim’s final thoughts.
Set in London during the height of the Spanish Flu, Vampyr is an action RPG where players control Jonathon Reid, a doctor who is turned into a vampire. Amidst his transformation, he will discover a horrifying secret the city is hiding. Vampyr will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in the first half of 2018.
